The term ‘sanctuary cities’ should be used lightly. Democrats are trying to get away with simply saying they are sanctuary cities without having to actually be sanctuary cities. As proof, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser and New York City Mayor Eric Adams are furious that Texas Governor Greg Abbott has bused nearly 1,500 migrants to New York City since August 5th, and 7,400 to Washington, DC since April.
“The majority coming in are believed to not have valid asylum claims, are bypassing federal immigration law, and instead of being deported are being released into the U.S. under new Biden administration policies, attorneys general who’ve sued the administration argue” reports The Center Square.
Of the roughly 5,000 migrants crossing the border that agents encounter in Texas everyday, Abbott says he is shipping them to the sanctuary cities instead of overwhelming the border communities. Operation Lone Star was initiated in March 2021 and “continues to fill the dangerous gaps left by the Biden Administration’s refusal to secure the border,” Abbott said.
“Every individual who is apprehended or arrested and every ounce of drugs seized would have otherwise made their way into communities across Texas and the nation due to President Biden’s open border policies.”
Roughly 5 million people from over 150 countries have entered the U.S. illegally, including “gotaways,” since Biden took office, according to data published by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol and information provided by a Border Patrol agent to The Center Square. Biden’s Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has significantly altered federal immigration policies, making it much easier, and without consequence, to enter the United States illegally.
Texas had over 100,000 apprehensions last month alone. The numbers exclude the tens of thousands of “gotaways” who evaded law enforcement as they entered Texas illegally in between ports of entry.

NYC Mayor Adams’ budget cuts slash total number of police and education funds
“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will only be the beginning,” said New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams about his decision to make budget cuts as a result of the overwhelming migrant crisis.
However, those who will suffer from budget cuts to the city’s services to offset the cost of dealing with the ever-increasing number of migrants are those that are in place to make the city better.
“The cuts will see police freeze hiring and bring the total number of police officers below 30,000. It would further slash the education budget by $1 billion over two years and affect a litany of other agencies” reports Just The News.
Albeit, Adams admitted: “In all my time in government, this is probably one of the most painful exercises I’ve gone through.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the past year, including roughly 13,000 sent from Texas by GOP Governor Greg Abbott as part of his ongoing bussing plan to send new arrivals to the U.S. to sanctuary cities.
However, similar to other leaders of sanctuary cities, Adams is unwilling to put his money where his mouth is. In September, Adams warned that the crisis would “destroy New York City” and begged the federal government to pay for his mess.
“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at the time. “The federal government needs to do its job. We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do their job: close the borders,” said Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis Martin insisted in early October. “And until you close the borders, you need to come on with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them through our 50 states.”
